Intimate cosmetic surgery of the vaginal lips will consist of:

For the labia majora, a small liposuction if the problem comes from excess fat, or removal of the excess skin followed by a suture if the problem comes from flaccid and drooping skin. For the labia minora, to reduce the size when these are too  embarrassing. The best nymphoplasty technique is the one that consists of removing a triangle on the posterior half of the lip (see diagram). Thus, the appearance of the folds of the lip is preserved, and the scar is concealed at the junction of the labia majora and the labia minora.

The advantages of the resection of a posterior triangle are: scars concealed in the folds between the labia minora and labia majora, same color of the labia minora once sutured, same thickness of the lip along its entire length; preservation of natural lip folds. When the vaginal lips are too small (hypotrophy) or non-existent (atrophy), a fat graft from the patient is done to make the lips more swollen and restore all its sensuality to the vulva.
